to the wealthiest 2% of americans. to do that would require us to go out and borrow $700 billion, again, to give tax cuts to the most fortunate 2% of americans. and we think that's not a responsible use of taxpayer resources at a time when we face enormous challenges. and we think if republicans want to do more to help the economy now, again, the best thing to do besides extending these middle- class tax cuts is to give stronger incentives to businesses to invest in america now. >> couric: but you keep hammering home that 2% of the wealthiest americans. but tens of thousands of small businesses and other businesses in this country make $250,000 a year. so aren't you going to be hurting them? >> if you look at the joint-- what the joint task committee has said, 80% of those 2% of americans affected by this are people and businesses who make more than a million dollars a year. and, again, what we're proposing, katie, is to restore those tax rates to the levels they were in the late, which was a period we had remarkably strong economic growth. >> couric: 10 million jobs have been lost. many of them are
